Robotics Win

Posted on 31st October 2011 at 08:29

Seven girls from R. A. Long, Mark Morris and Three Rivers Christian are winners, picking up the top prize in the regional “Girls Generation” robotics competition that was held this weekend down in Beaverton. 23 teams from across the northwest were involved in a game called “Logomotion,” which involved head-on-head competitions between 120-pound robots; the robots were required to pick up inflatable tubes, then hang those tubes on hooks that were nine feet in the air. They also had to deploy a “minibot” that would climb a ten-foot pole. Their team name is “Bits-N-Bots,” and is comprised of Stephanie Herrera, Kyleen Koenig, Karina Dautenhahn, Madison Eaton, Kory Gonzalez, Danielle Leslie, and Ashtyn Grant. As a rookie team, this was their first-ever win at this level of robotics competition.
